Now wait a minute...I understood it just fine...seriously, I had to look back after reading your post, Capn. Suppose that reflects poorly on me, eh?

You no doubt mean well, but do recall, we gave up the Forum Police Squad when the dee--ficit (sp?) went south.

If we can live with spaces juxtaposed with periods, and lower case Dire-esque posts, not to mention my abbrev's (and mis-spellings), I suppose I'd suggest we just all accept most of what is posted as gibberish req'ing a great deal of tolerance (less it's Sir Rob).

Not that I am in the biz of saying what "is" or what "should" be anymore...thankfully.

Or, did I miss something else to do with LW? If so, nevermind.

you only know to well my pain. I'm a dinosaur living in the digital world . Jesus CHRIST I've only been on the machine for 3 months that's it . I don't think it's all that bad given the time put in . I did not grow up w/ the machine.

3 months? Considering I've been on the internet for 10 years and still have to call for my teenager to rescue me from digital chaos on a regular basis, I'd say you're doing great.

He got me a b'day card that said, "Mom, How about for your birthday I set Happy Birthday as your cell phone ring tone?" Inside it says, "You couldn't really do anything about it if I did, could you?"

Overly obsessed myself welcome to the forum, it is a place of constant entertainment and bewonderment, or bewilderment, or York peppermint patty mints, whichever your fancy...

Tried to post a TDIH but keep getting invalid information... O well...

Language evolves. Where is Rob, anyway?

A heartfelt thanks to all who did not gang up on me because
of a run on sentence or a couple of misplaced commas and periods. Truth be told I'm not fucking Hemmingway here and I still think it's more sour grapes for my fisrt post
where I tore the Dead apart. Things can and will get better
in the punctuation dept. While some slammed me others read it and got it. For that I again thanks w/ xxxooooxxxxooos.

lw , I am sorry we are here .
If people didn't care they wouldn't say a word . Why bother ?
Look down this thread . Part of it discusses my complete and utter lack of proper punctuation . It really did drive Ring nuts at first . And others . Still does .

I love it here b/c of no one 'owns' this place . We are left almost completely to our own devices and speech .
It's not bubble wrapped . but a rare and wonderful place . Yes , there can be a sharp elbow , but there are also Eureka Moments and warm fuzzies .
I have had my hide taken to task a few times ( and many more in my future I'm sure ).
Looking back I can see that I did not greet you yet . So hello , and I suggest from NFA on :-) ,

So again I take a step back, and all you said was right on target. For the few days of doing the forum I gotta tell you it's been fun. The recolections and observations some
more critical than others has just affermed that music is so objective and slanted to ones personal taste.Thanks for the hello and I'm sure there's going to be a clear headed debate in our future.

See the deal is lw , you are gonna look back in three months and want to delete all your old posts b/c they are going to look nothing like the one's you will be writing then .
But I , on the other hand , will still be working as a punctuation artist . Or trying to . You have to bleed for your art ya know . ;-)

Micah, I just realized. You and Leftwinger do the same thing, writing-wise, and I don't even know how you do it. OK, let me
try and see if it works
to write a post as if it's poetry
with
interesting punctuation at the very end .

BTW, LWer, love the story. The one about your fist frist fsrt frts time :-) That's a classic.

Why do I have to come in at the very end ? I didn't agree with that . I don't like being a rump roast .

And missy , I blaze my own artistic path .
At the end , when the accolades come in , the laurels will be placed on only one head .

Well, you're carving your niche. After all, ee cummings and bell hooks have a lock on the lower-case thing. Trends have to start somewhere. Ringo and I will help you on your way to fame by serving the all-important function of being the Guardians of Literary Orthodoxy against which you must fight before you can be taken seriously as an artiste.
